concerned - I don't know if owcp will force you to retire, but I do foresee changes on the horizon for all federal workers.

injuredneedhelp - You will have to use your own health insurance if owcp won't accept your claim. If you have an open claim, then ask your attending physician to refer you to the pain doctor and pay the bill yourself, but then send a form owcp-915 to owcp directly and attach your attending physician's referral and proof you paid for the visit. Owcp should reimburse you if you already have an approved owcp claim and your attending physician refers you to a pain doctor. Either way, you need the pain management - either pay it yourself thru your insurance or suffer with the pain.

How do you get a dr to help you with your injuries after being hurt on the job and wc won't approve treatment? It's been almost 3 years and I have only seen a neurosurgeon/pain management. I need a dr for all new and old complaints.

I have an excepted claim and over the last few years the board has taken things away from me, for example my disability, then when my wheelchair starts leaking oil all over our carpet, I'm informed to take to take to a company and choose what they recommend for my needs, and since my vehicle is now 12 years old, to also have them also pick a vehicle. Today I received a letter stating that they would not accept the choices I made, because they were too expensive, granted they were what the experts recommended for my condition, now I have to drive back down to San Diego to try these other wheelchairs and vehicles, because my husband refuses to drive a Dodge, also the wheelchair was not available at the time we were there, I am in a fix!

clark d - If owcp says causal relationship not met, then you need to advise your doctor that his medical report needs to state very specific what duties you were doing which caused your injury and he needs to explain the mechanics of the injury with explicit medical rationale. If the doctor doesn't write a report with medical rationale, owcp denies your claim. You need to do an appeal, and enclose your doctor's new medical report with medical rationale.

Has the po corrected the safety issue at work? Did you write up the safety issue at work by completing the OSHA form? That form would be evidence you could also enclose in your appeal.

Did you have a LWEC on the first injury if not then you should get paid based on your full time rate/hours.

clarkd - While you were only working 4 hours per day before you got re-injured, owcp was supposed to pay you 4 hours per day. Were they paying you for the 4 hours you could not work? If not, then they owe you 4 hours of pay per day as long as you were only working 4 hours per day. If owcp was not paying you for the 4 hours your doctor wouldn't allow you to work due to work injury, then you should go to your congressman and tell them you need help and that owcp has not been paying you.

But, for your new injury, you should only be getting 4 hours of owcp pay for that. But, you should have been and should still be receiving the 4 hours of pay that you weren't able to work from your first injury.

clarkd - I think I answered this question already. In case you didn't see my answer: The 4 hours that you're getting paid for by owcp for your previous injury will stay at the same pay rate. The new injury you received while only working 4 hours/day, you should get paid your current payrate for the 4 hours you are required to miss from work due to your injury.

You will still get paid for 8 hours/day by owcp, but the previous 4 hour payrate stays the same and the new injury for the 4 hours will most likely be a higher payrate. It just depends if you make more money per hour now than you did at your first injury.

Cross Post:
Was wondering if anyone knew what this was: I signed into ACS to check some things and under bills in process they had my last 4 mileage claims (that they have paid already) in the bills in process area again with the reason being "ACS SPECIAL MASS ADJUSTMENT"

Anyone have a clue?
